On 2 August 2011 I start my placement at Conservative Central office. It has similarities and differences to my existing day job, so I am really looking forward to seeing another organisation at work.
My research is now beginning to take shape, and is exploring the issues relating to change, leadership and the traits needed, and mapping them against eccentricity.
In parallel to all this I am both coaching and being coached. In all the diversity there is a synergy.
